Registering in GAC

hi,

i registered a .NET Assembly (a DLL) in the GAC.
i am able to view the assembly (named "Vehicle") in the GAC.
however, in VS.NET this assembly is not appearing in the list of
..NET components when i click on "Add Reference".
what might be the reason?

regards,
Kiran

Visual Studio's Add Reference dialog doesn't list the contents of the
GAC. This KB article explains how to make an assembly show up there.

I have written a COM Server in C# and its working perfectly. I am not ready to deploy to client computers to begin the real testing and am now wondering how to perform. The part that confuses me is that you can not use regsvr32 to register the COM server so I'm wondering if placing it inside the .NET library will automatically take care of registering it so non managed code programs can access it or do I have to manually use the regasm...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
